Microsoft Releases Update Rollup for Windows 10 Technical Preview 2

Posted on February 4, 2015 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10 with 0 Comments

Every month, it seems, Microsoft changes the way it updates the current pre-release version of Windows. With the first Technical Preview builds, we got monthly updates. But this month, we see the first-ever Update Rollup for Windows 10 Technical Preview 2.


And it’s a doozy, from the looks of things, fixing a laundry list of issues with WTP2. These include:

Xbox Live-enabled games that require sign-in do not launch, and incorrectly display the message, “To use this app, you need to sign in with the Microsoft account that was used to download it.”

The Start Menu fails to launch shortly after install

The shortcut for the new Store (Beta) does not appear on the taskbar

The user remains at the “Please Wait” screen when attempting to sign in with a Smart Card connected

Virtual machines (VMs) lose connectivity to virtual hard drives (VHDs)

Users receive Error 0x8E5E05E2 when installing apps

The system stops responding when installing apps from the Store

There is a delay when opening a new tab in Internet Explorer

The system fails to resume from sleep when connected to multiple monitors with some graphics drivers

The user is presented with the incorrect End-User License Agreement (EULA) during upgrade

The Settings app incorrectly reports that new builds are available, which return error 0x80246017 when attempting to download

The screen doesn’t properly refresh after rotating between portrait and landscape

Creating a virtual machine or bringing a Hyper-V host under management results in error 0x80200065 – “The transfer was paused because the computer is in power-saving mode. The transfer will resume when the computer wakes up.”

Windows Remote Desktop Client crashes when playing video or displaying fast moving images in a remote session

Reliability improvements for virtual machine live migrations

Reliability improvements to prevent some system crashes

Reliability improvements to prevent possible data corruption

Increased power efficiency to extend battery life

You can find out more about this update on the Microsoft Support web site. Or just head into Windows Update and start the download.
